What do the Beatles' "It's Only Love" and "Benefit of Mr. Kite" have in common? Just noticed this.
Ouch. Jimmy butchered one of the best solos in rock.
No wonder I couldn't get that sound with my EB-3.
I got a theory that the Beatles learned about augmented, diminished, and minor IV chords from their cover of "Til There Was You."
This tune is usually played in Eb and the first two bars are a I vi ii V progression which is repeated later. I'm having trouble hearing how Bill...
I've been quoting "Cherokee' when playing a fast blues after hearing this at 1:26. The half notes of the melody work nicely at a fast tempo....

This is a better transcription of First Rule of Thumb:
I thought it was a decent rendition. Eva Cassidy did it best.
Actually i think it's just that he's not holding the pick very tightly. That's one advantage of the three finger grip. It's kinda wedged in there...
